HoYoverse’s open-world role-playing game Genshin Impact is not just about the waifus and husbandos — it’s also about damage numbers.
With weapon and artifact statistics combined, it’s difficult to really understand a character’s pure Genshin Impact damage.
Luckily for fans, math genius and Redditor u/YuminaNirvalen has created a Genshin Impact damage calculation guide that discusses everything a player needs to know, from elemental reactions to shields.
This is the ultimate guide to Genshin Impact damage calculation
If you are obsessed with Genshin Impact damage numbers, this one is for you.
Using their love for LaTeX mathematics, Redditor u/YuminaNirvalen built the most detailed guide on Genshin Impact damage that the community has ever seen.
LaTeX is a markup language that enables its users to write math formulas and equations with the help of codes.
u/YuminaNirvalen‘s guide spans 21 pages and dives deep into concepts, including how to get your base damage, total damage, elemental reactions, and even a comparison for the best shielders in the game.
The author also dedicated a section discussing complex examples to help players further understand how the equations work.
“(Use this guide) if you want to know if you should go for a specific constellation or not,” explained u/YuminaNirvalen.
“(Especially) if you don’t want to get influenced by let’s say YouTube videos about that stuff, since those ‘showcases’ often aren’t really ‘trustworthy’ since they use different weapons/teams etc.”
It can also be used to figure out how a talent or weapon changes a player’s damage output.
